Upgrading NFO

You upgrade a single instance of NFO by installing the latest version over your existing installation. During the upgrade the installer package preserves all NFO configurations, except configuration files changed manually. These files, if changed, are backed up into conf-backup.<date>.tar.gz file (<date> is archive date), and should be restored manually, if necessary. The following is a list of some configuration files.

File

$nfo_home/tomcat/bin/setenv.sh

After upgrade, validate default configuration and restore from the backup if it is required. If you didn’t modify these files, ignore the caution.
